Vettel completed organic farming internship during lockdown

Sebastian Vettel has revealed he completed an internship on organic farming during lockdown in 2020.

Vettel is the only one of F1's 20 drivers without a social media account and managed to keep a low profile through lockdown ahead of the delayed 2020 season start. The four-time F1 champion, who is racing for Aston Martin this year, has spoken of an interest in nature and farming before.

Last year Vettel joined Lewis Hamilton in calling for F1 to do more to protect the environment. F1 hopes to be carbon neutral by the year 2030.

Vettel has been announced as an ambassador for BioBienenApfel, an initiative looking to protect habitats for insects.
